Rose in Vale, Cornwall
This 19 Century miner's cottage in rural Cornwall had small, dark rooms with limited natural light having been built into an imposing Cornish hillside. The challenge was to fashion a light and airy creative living space using a mono-pitched roof and glazing patterns as reflective of its natural context; the roof reflects the hillside's slope and glazing pattern surrounding trees.
The old stone house is set within stunning gardens. The brief was to design an open living space to engage with the garden, lake and the breathtaking views across the hills of mid-Devon to capture the light and sun. A high-end design that respectfully compliments the history of its surroundings whilst opening up space and light for living.
